This hand-rolled vegan sushi recipe is incredibly versatile and also tasty. I choose to go with a green on green theme (Jalapeños, avocado, cucumber, and coriander), but these could just as easily be stuffed with bell peppers, carrots, sweet potato, asparagus, cabbage, etc. Brown rice is the new black – it goes with everything.

What Is Temaki?

Temaki is a cone-shaped sushi roll with a nori (seaweed) outer shell that’s typically filled with rice, fish, and vegetables. This vegan temaki recipe leaves out the fish, but is heavy on veggies!

Ingredients for Vegan Sushi

  • 3 to 4 sheets of nori, cut in half
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 English cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 Jalapeños, cut into matchsticks
  • optional: soy sauce, hot sauce, or mayo for dipping

How to Make Vegan Sushi

  • Place a thin layer of rice over a single piece of nori and then add a few pieces of avocado, cucumber, Jalapeños, and coriander on top of the rice. 
  • Fold one corner of the nori to the center and then roll from the other side to create a cone. If the nori is not sticking, wetting the edge with a little water can help
  • Serve immediately as is or with any desired sauces.
